It's a crucial difference.
I love performing, trying new things, exploring, and being the center of attention from time to time. I get really passionate about food and superheroes. I started reading comic books when I was 26 and I don't know what took me so long.
I've lived in a dozen countries and speak three languages reasonably well. Before I die I hope to have lived in a maybe a dozen more, but between now and when I restart my serious international traveling I have to fight some student loans from business school.
I haven't had a lot of serious relationships. I've had some intense ones that didn't last very long. This is partially a result of all the traveling I did during my twenties.
I'm pretty good at keeping my promises and get irritated when I don't think someone is standing by their commitments.
Marriage and kids and things I want, in fact I aspire to them. A big part of how I judge my life is going to relate to how effective a husband and a father I've been. All that doesn't have to happen tomorrow, but that is the direction I'm going.
Being social and mixing with a variety of people is important to me. I don't think that there are groups of people that I'm too good to spend time around. I've been accused of being a social chameleon and I'm really attracted to women who can keep up with me in that respect. Because of that I get turned off fast when I hear a woman being judgmental towards others.
Despite being non-religious I think the prayer of St. Francis is one of the best things I've ever read and I've committed it to memory. (http://www.haroldberlinerpress.com/p_stfran.html)
Life's an adventure and I think that it is one to be shared. I want to see how far I go and I don't know how the story ends. I'm looking for someone to share it with.
